  WNIU invites you to experience live classical music in a most classic setting!

Each summer, classical music fans flock to Woodstock, Illinois' historic Opera House for a concert series known as the Woodstock Mozart Festival. Spanning three weekends and presented under the banner of "Mozart…and More," attendees get a taste of Mozart and other notable composers in three distinct concerts and conversation about the music.

The charmingly restored 1880's Woodstock Opera House sets a stage reminiscent of Mozart's day -- with the addition of air conditioned comfort! The intimacy of the hall provides a memorable listening experience from every seat in the house, thanks to a superb orchestra and world class artists.

Take your pick of Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon performances during the three-weekend series, kicking off July 27th and closing August 11th.  You'll find links to all the information about the Woodstock Mozart Festival on our Events page.
